“I cannot remember when I had so much fun”
This was absolutely awesome. I am so glad we were able to see this memorable show. We knew the words to every song. We sang and danced and locked arms with people sitting next to us and reminisced. I saw y brother throw his head back an laugh out loud-the highlight of the evening for me. I am celebrating an august birthday and was in the group brought up front for the singing happy birthday moment. It was very special. I cannot remember when i had so much fun and it wad apparent that everyone in the room was having the same experience.
Tip: This musical show should be advertised more. I been to mb every year for at least 10 years and never new about this theater. Please get some info in the hotels and resorts so folks will know about this show. I learned of this by a co-corker who had just been to the show. Now i’m telling everyone about it.
